Snow Bunting


Gary Pullan located a confiding Snow Bunting at Daventry Country Park today, and the bird continued to show well in to the late afternoon.  Please see some images below kindly provided by Andrew Tyrrell and Dave Jackson.

At Hanging Houghton, a dead lamb in one of the grass fields adjacent to the village attracted a couple of Ravens and a Red Kite.

I noticed a north-bound Swallow over Brackmills, N'pton this afternoon and a singing Willow Warbler was present at Kelmarsh Hall this evening.
